I’m quite pleased to report… I. AM. VICTORIOUS! I stuck to the 6-Day Express program 100%, and here are the results:
– I dropped 5 pounds (OK, maybe more like 5.5 or 5.75, but I want to give myself a head start for next week.) For those wanting to get a little perspective on what you might expect- I started at 145 lbs, my goal is 127. I’m 5′ 6″ish. Keep in mind I also did a 5.75 mile run on Sunday, plus a week of P90X workouts.
– My bodyfat looks to have dropped a few percentage points, but we get pretty broad variance in our results.
– I lost an inch in my waist, an inch or so in my belly, a little in my chest (boo!) Not sure about my arms and legs, but I don’t much care about them. My hips are the same, which is fine by me.
– Most importantly, I know that I am able to live quite fine on significantly fewer calories, and I’m ready to dive into the P90X Fat Burner Nutrition plan (though MillionDollarBody.com is giving me a meal plan that has, in my opinion, more calories than I’d like.) I am kind of going to be Deal-a-Mealing it with the P90X nutrition plan, using the MyBeachBody?MillionDollar menus for ideas.
Yesterday, I ate pretty normally (even had a few juleps at the Derby- R.I.P. Eight Belles– and a margi afterwards) and dropped another half a pound before yesterday and today.
That said, I am blogging this from my couch, laid up with some fiercely sore/burning lungs and general malaise, so I had to miss today’s run. This is likely related to my immune system tanking from the steroid shot I had to get for my rashy face (read about it at the end of this post), but I’m sure the seriously limited calories this week didn’t help.
Things I’m most excited about in the coming week– STEEL CUT OATMEAL for breakfast, and getting to within 10 pound of my goal? Stay tuned…
